Montessori inspired kids bookshelf

Hi all.

I recently finished a bookshelf project for my daughter. It's a Montessori themed bookshelf I made using plywood. Here's all the progress and the final product.

Routed and sanded down the edges to soften the whole bookcase and make it kid friendly.

Each shelf if exactly the same replicated 3 times.

Sketch of the initial idea.

 

Cheers all.

That's sensational, Rufaro (@Chaks_DIY)! I've always loved Montessori styled play equipment. I believe it's the pure functionality that I enjoy, and this bookshelf embodies that theme well. 

 

You've done an excellent job, and the result speaks volumes of the care you've taken.

Thanks @MitchellMc 

I've always appreciated the functionality and aesthetics of it all. I think it gives kids a chance to she how things actually work, with joints and edges and all the natural patterns.

 

In saying that, building it is less forgiving which was a lesson in patience and trusting the process !

Looks great! 😁

It has a nice 'library' look to it.

Anything that entices children to books - is a wonderful thing.
